Blacktongue, Knarthex Hangout Mini of the Month for May

Recommended Posts

So, It's May the First, Time for a new Hangout Mini!

Continuing in our theme of Building a Frostgrave Warband,

This Month, our mini is Blacktongue, Gnoll Ranger, 03190 in metal, 77104 in bones.


Now I have 20+ of the Old Ral Partha Gnolls in 25mm, so this guy, being much bigger than them, will be a Flind from Fiend  Folio...

On the other hand, I painted the first of my Partha Gnolls using Ral Partha Mane Yellow, so this guy needs to be different....

Going back to MMI, Gnolls have a Green Grey Fur, so I decided that I would use SC75 Field Grey 38 50% with SC75 SS Camo Shade, mixed with some Nacre mixed 50% with the aforementioned mix as my base coat, as I now tend to paint 'Dark to Light'....

So here he is with the first basecoat...


Even though I am doing the metal version, the way his left arm fit into the ball and socket at the elbow, looked best in more the bones pose than the metal.....


So Thanks for looking!

So after drybrushing him with a 50%mix of SC Field Grey and SS Camo Highlight, combined 50% with Nacar, then a mix of SC Field Grey and SS Camo Highlight 1-2, mixed 50% with Nacar, I then drybrushed some Polly S Wer-Flesh, followed by Polly S Yellow Gray.

He then got an overall wash of 50% Agrax Earthshade....





Moar drybrushing next...

I love me some gnolls, always been among my favorites.  Really liking what you've done so far!


Not really in the mood to hobby tonight, to much stress and to little time, but I added GW Bubonic Brown to his irises, and Monster mouth (SC 75 Pink Flesh to his mouth...

      Cinder didn't work out for my return to hobbying, so I decided to try something a bit less ambitious....
      Reading back through past projects, I saw one of the hangout minis of the month was Blacktounge, Gnoll Ranger from Reaper, and remembered that I had picked up this set at a paint day with the New England Miniatures folks at the Citadel games store....
      I figure if I can follow my old WIP, I won't be stressing to much, and I will have another figure to add to the Frostgrave warband that was started so long ago,,,,
      So the 2 got assembled and puttied, and now the never ending search for minor mold lines can begin when the putty is dry...
      thanks for taking a look!
      Wish me luck!!!!

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...

      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...

      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...
